Corn and Octopus Soup // Zuppa di mais e polpo

Friday, July 21, 2017


I think it was around January when I became obsessed with making a corn and octopus soup. I don't know what's the reason behind my obsession, but I do know that I really wanted to make it. And I did make it, but it was terrible.

Pasta Salad with Basil Goat Cheese Sauce and Roasted Beet // Insalata di pasta con salsa al basilico e formaggio di capra e barbabietola arrostita

Wednesday, July 19, 2017


Turns out I actually like love pasta. If not, why would I be making tons of pasta salads? They are even more time-consuming than regular, warm pasta. So I guess it's love after all.

Matcha Tea Zucchini Noodles and Chickpeas // Noodles di zucchine e ceci al tè matcha

Monday, July 17, 2017


You know when you are craving some food and that is all you want to eat? I'm in a chickpea phase right now and because of the heat I pretty much end up making salads all the time.

Ratatouille

Friday, July 14, 2017


Happy Bastille Day! Or as French would say, Bonne Fête Nationale! Or is it Joyeux 14 Juillet? I should probably know since I'm half French. Anyway, for this very reason, as a way to celebrate this festive day, I made ratatouille. No, I am not talking about the Disney movie. Although the mouse did cook ratatouille. And it looked way prettier than mine.

Apricot Bites with Goat Cheese and Pistachios // Bocconcini di albicocca con formaggio di capra e pistacchi

Wednesday, July 12, 2017


This is that time of the year my grandfather brings me crates full of apricots. Now, I've never been an apricot person. I always liked peaches better. But nothing tastes as good as homegrown fruit and vegetables, so if I have to pick between store-bought peaches and homegrown apricots, I'll always pick the latter. Which is why I've been eating apricots like crazy lately. Mostly as a snack.

Mexican Quinoa Salad // Insalata di quinoa alla messicana

Monday, July 10, 2017


I love eating salads this time of the year. Actually, they are pretty much all I eat these days. They are so fresh and cooling, not to mention the fact that it doesn't take a lot of time to make them. Which is great since lately I'm being the laziest I've ever been.

Eggplant Noodles with Peanut Sauce // Noodles di melanzane con salsa alle arachidi

Friday, July 07, 2017


My vegetable garden is finally producing a lot of vegetables. Beetroots, carrots, zucchini. And eggplant, of course. And the easiest way - and my favourite - is to roast them. But there's also another way I love eating my vegetables, and that's making noodles out of them. And that's exactly what I did with my first eggplant.

Coconut Shrimps // Gamberi al cocco

Wednesday, July 05, 2017


A while ago, I wanted to eat coconut shrimps but I really wasn't in the mood to measure everything and write the recipe. I just wanted to make something simple and fast because I was hungry. And so did I. And they looked pretty good too so I decided to share a picture on Snapchat. One of my friends there, Nadine, saw them and asked for the recipe.

Grilled Tempeh and Peach Salad // Insalata con tempeh e pesca grigliati

Monday, July 03, 2017


Salads are pretty much all I eat these days. I guess it's because of the heat but I just don't feel like doing anything in the kitchen. All I can deal with is chopping some vegetables, and mixing them with beans, corn or couscous.
